I told ya not to count Raul Marquez out.He's still got itThe fight is awesome, Marquez is a warrior.
The judging was horrible though. If not for the point deduction we'd have got a draw in that one. I had it 8-4.
Shoot Lance cant you give any other fighter credit for winning. Where is your star man lately???He beat a no name prospect with a built up record, trust me, he no longer has it. Put him in there with pavlik at middleweight, we'll see how much he has lol.
But you claim Jones still has it Lance Marquez could beat him today dontcha think ?I like marquez, always supported him, and I give him credit for winning, but he doesnt still have it. He barely EVER had it.....
Raul is a good guy Tommy I've known him since he fought a good friend Alex Rios in Ft Worth. Was a battle of two big punchers. Both wound up with big shots Raul's landed a spl;it second early Alex was KO'd in the first roundYup, Marquez looks far from shot to me too C.J. I cant pick him over AA or Pavlik though. He has a chance against Sturm IMO.
Raul was supposed to be just a stepping stone But somebody forgot to give him the script lolI agree.
I also thought the scoring was off. Marquez won most of the 5th and up.
LOL Lance I seriously doubt youve ever seen Alex fight. Ask Terry Norris what he thought of him. Norris caught Alex square several times and couldnt put him away. Alex gave him all he wanted in return tooit was an entertaining fight, especially with the fighting after the bell. But marquez is not a big puncher. Rios just has a chin of china.
I actually own a few of his fights so your wrong there. Marquez knocked him out in 1 round, enough said. I'll give rios the fact that he's a big puncher but he either knocks them out of gets knocked out. And just to own you, Norris put him away in 5 rounds. He also won every round of that fight until the stoppage.[/QUOTE
I was at that fight Lance covering it for the Boxing Times I talked to both fighters after. Even Norris said it was nip and tuck and what a tough fight Alex gave him. Alex rocked him several times
